Draw and Paint with a Sharpie Marker and FAS Painting Dye

You will need
Waterproof Black Sharpie Markers (or any waterproof markers)
FAS Painting Dyes and Fine Brushes.

Draw a picture using the black Sharpie markers. 

Using the markers enables the children to add lots of fine details to their drawings. 

The picture is then coloured with FAS Painting Dyes. 

FAS School Art Painting Dye Set

It doesn’t matter if the dye runs together or the lines are gone over. This gives a nice watercolour effect and the black lines always stay visible. More details can be added after the dye has dried. The process can also be done in reverse with the dying done first.

Monoprinting with Kids Super Tempera Paint

Monoprinting: School Holidays are coming.
Here is a great and simple colour project for the kids.

See how you MonoPrint with School Super Tempera Paint

This is quick, colourful and easy.  It is block printing at its simplest form
using a Tempera Poster Paint with fingers and kids do love pushing paint around
with their fingers.

So simple yet so much colouful fun.
  • : Sketch Paper
  • : Tempera Paint in simple bold colours
  • : Paint pots or dishes.
  • : Printing plate: (old plastic placemat, styrofoam board, any flat non-porous surface). We used a small sheet of plexiglas.  You can use a wipe-able bench top. 
  • : Roller or a wide paint brush.
  • : Apron and a cover sheet, newspapers or paper towels.

Lets Get Started:
Spread Tempera Paint evenly over your printing plate with a wide brush or use a roller.  Making sure that it is slightly smaller than your paper.  It is not important to make it straight edged in fact it adds to the final effect.
Using fingers draw designs on the painted area.  The more simple and basic picture the better. What you are trying to do is remove the paint with your finger. If you are not happy with the design you can re-roll the area and start again. 
When you're happy with your design, lay the paper on top, making sure to cover the area with paint. Try not to press on the painted area too much and also try not to move the paper around as it will smudge your final design. 
Carefully peel the paper from the printing plate to reveal the mono printed image.
The printing plate can be reworked to be used again and again for the whole class.
Allow to dry.

Printing with painted toys and wheels

Use Toy Cars to make Print Patterns with FAS Super Tempera Paint.

Printing with toys and wheels.

This is so much fun, it really gets kids thinking outside the square and using their imagination. In fact, sometimes it’s more fun looking for, and collecting objects to paint with than the paint imprint stamping itself. 

Paint imprint stamping is using any object and paint to make interesting imprints.

Old toys are brilliant for this.  Tyre tracks from old toy trucks and cars and feet of dolls.  But you can also use sponges, corks and other interesting found objects to make a paint imprint stamping masterpiece.  

So much fun and every time you try it you get something totally different.

You might need to wash some of the objects before you use them.

Keep a jar of water and a paper towel handy for the brushes.
